Streambar & Cable TV Box (will it work)

Can I use the streambar along with an Xfinity X1 cable box? Will the cable TV play through the streambar? How does it get hooked up? Looks like there is only 1 HDMI port. I’m assuming input from the TV? Will it play from from one HDMI port to another?

Re: Streambar & Cable TV Box (will it work)

If your tv has hdmi-arc, if not you will need to use combination of regular hdmi and optical. The arc or optical is what sends the audio from your tv to streambar. And the tv needs to recognize the streambar as a cec device, by refreshing the cec devices once the streambar is connected.
